How do I update my contact information and receive DataCite Communications?

If you or one of your colleagues are missing out on DataCite’s newsletter or other communications, you need to make sure that correct and up-to-date contact information has been added to your organization's DataCite Fabrica profile.

DataCite Fabrica is where information about DataCite Members, Consortium Organizations, and Repositories is stored. You must make sure your contact information is correct and kept up to date for all of these accounts in order to receive communications from DataCite. To do this, log in to DataCite Fabrica with your Member or Consortium Organization account. Navigate to the “Contacts” tab and click “Add Contact”. Fill in the contact information and then click “Add Contact”. Once the contact information has been saved, an automated email will be sent to the new contact requesting permission for the email address to be subscribed to the DataCite mailing list. You must accept this request or your email address won’t be synced to the mailing list.
